History of the Museum of East Dorset
The Museum of East Dorset in Wimborne Minster, Dorset dates back to the 1500s. Formerly called The Priest's House Museum.
Hilda Coles inherited the ironmonger's business from her father, Tom Frank Coles, following his death in 1953. Seven years later she took the decision to close the shop and fulfil his long-held wish to turn the building, known as the Priest's House, into a museum. The museum opened on 31 July 1962.
The museum occupies a historic Grade II* listed building, a hall house dating from the late 16th or early 17th century.
Notable rooms are the 17th-century main hall and the 18th-century parlour and a 250 year old kitchen.
Mr Low's Victorian stationery shop (closed up for over 30 years) and the Coles' Ironmongers were both recreated from original shop stock.
John Bowdidge, a Gentleman, lived in the house between 1687 and 1695. Later the building was divided between several families. The front portion of the building was most likely used as a shop from the mid-1700s until 1960.
The outbuildings are Georgian, and the Tin Smith's and Forge are Victorian.
Staff have heard noises and bangs when alone in the House. Books have impossibly 'jumped' off a book shelf! Along with a feeling of being watched. This museum has a lot of potential.

What Happens at the Event
Our events are always 100% investigation and vigil events, we won't waste time by taking you on a history tour of the venue.
We will not usually talk about the history of the building unless people ask us to do so.
We don't hold workshops or briefing on equipment usage. Any equipment that you will be using throughout the event will be explained at the start of each session by our team leaders.
For the first few hours (usually 1 hour per session) you will be in a group and you will spend time with our Mediums doing séances, where they will try to get the active spirit to move you in some way (this is not designed to scare you) and with our paranormal investigators doing experiments, table tilting, glass divination, Ouija boards, EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments and other equipment experiments using the latest ghost hunting equipment.
After these controlled sessions you will have the opportunity to venture off on your own or in small groups to explore the venue or to hold lone vigils or re-visiting an activity that you enjoyed in our controlled sessions. In this part of the night you can use our ghost hunting equipment to do your own ghost hunt. You may take photos/videos with your own cameras throughout our ghost hunts. You may also use any of your own ghost hunting equipment during our controlled sessions.
